My Review

I really and thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I felt that there was a good balance between Major General Singh's personal life and her military life. The way both lives intertwined with each other to shape the person that Major General Singh is today is great.

Major General Singh had a rough life but sadly not any different then some people growing up. I am blessed that I did not have to deal with the situations that Major General Singh encountered like being homeless, rape, abandonment or a spilt family. My parents love both me and my sister. We had a nice home growing up and never had to look forward to either parent having "drinking days".

There is an analogy that Major General Singh references and that is a tree. I like this reference as we are all trees. Each branch is a different path that we have taken in life (good or bad). It is how we learn from our choices that help us to grow and have a strong root base.

To quote Major General Singh "You often hear people say, "Live life to the fullest." For me, it meant living the life I desired to have and refusing to allow others to set the agenda."
